I was diagnosed on April 2nd. I am 34 years old and went to the ER because I thought I was having a heart attack. Turned out that I have extremely high blood pressure and that I am a diabetic. This information scared me and my husband as well as my friends and family. When I got out of the hospital after 3 days, I came home and emptied my fridge and filled it with the food of a vegetarian except for some chicken. I think I might have gone a bit overboard lol, I am having such a hard time finding what I should eat. I haven't had much help in knowing what to eat and what not to, any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated! No one in my life understands how big of a change and wake up call this has been. I need support from those who understand, and would love to be able to build friendships and help support others with diabetes. Thanks for any info you have!
